Fresh Rosemary & Goat Cheese Muffins

 


Rosemary is always a favorite herb for me, and one of the few I can actually grow without fail, so I always have it on hand.  Whenever I see a recipe with Rosemary in the title I always have to stopped and look twice.  This muffin recipe with fresh rosemary from Southern Living really intrigued me.  Not only is there a goat cheese center, but raisins and currants also.  The combination was completely enticing. . . of course I would have to make them.

These muffins were absolutely delightful!  The goat cheese is a little unexpected, but flavored with the fresh rosemary and sweetened by the raisins it is wonderful.  Serve them warm from the oven for breakfast, brunch or with dinner.
